Seurat and his painting technique

Seurat, the French painter is in the focus of our attention since he was born on 2nd December (1859).

Seurat had a scientific approach to painting. He believed that a painter could use color to create harmony and emotion in art in the same way that a musician can create harmony in music. He theorized that the scientific application of color was like any other natural law. Seurat developed Pointillism, which was a vibrantly different artistic style where paintings were composed of tiny colorful dots. He painted his landmark piece A Sunday afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte aged just twenty-five.

Other works by Seurat:

The Eiffel Tower, 1889

Grey Weather, Grande Jatte, 1888

The Circus, 1890-91
